The regional league is resting - but this Sunday there is still something special waiting for SV Elversberg and the entire environment. At 18.30 p.m., the second round of this year's DFB Cup will be drawn in the ARD sports show. Moderator Alexander Bommes and ex-national player Inka Grings will find out here who coach Horst Steffen's team will face in December. Everyone is very excited, including our striker Luca Schnellbacher
Schnellbacher likes to think back to September - back to a fantastic afternoon of football in the URSAPHARM arena at home and the 4-2 win over the second division FC St. Pauli. Schnelly has safely stowed his “Man of the Match” trophy at home in a box together with his jersey. "It is very important to me, but unfortunately there is not that much space with us at the moment, as we are expecting offspring in February," explains the 26 year old with a smile. He and his wife will quietly watch the draw on Sunday at home on the couch and, like the entire team, look forward to the draw. “The game against St. Pauli in the first round was just a great experience for all of us. It is not often that you come back against such an opponent after a deficit and then play the game like that, "explains Schnellbacher and continues:" With our four goals that was also something great for the spectators! "
"Darmstadt 98 or Eintracht Frankfurt"
His trophy is a nice honor for him, but the decisive factor for our center forward on that day was "the impressive team performance and the fight of each one for the other". The SVE would like to take this team spirit back into the competitive games, the league and the DFB Cup after the Corona break - "we want to give full throttle as a team and perform like that". As a player, Luca Schnellbacher has never reached the second round of the DFB Cup before, with Wehen Wiesbaden he was on the verge of it in 2014, but narrowly failed in the penalty shoot-out at 1. FC Kaiserslautern. “It is all the nicer to have the experience in front of your eyes”, says our number 24 full of anticipation and continues: “This is of course a good and great thing for the club as well as for Saarland.” Schnellbacher replied dreamlessly in the second round with two opponents: "Either Darmstadt 98 or Eintracht Frankfurt - I played for both clubs in my youth and after all I am also a Hessian boy."
32 teams are eagerly awaiting their opponents at the draw tomorrow evening. The game will then be played shortly before Christmas, namely on December 22nd or 23rd. By then at the latest, Luca Schnellbacher will be able to pull out his “Man of the Match” trophy and cup box and pull on his cup jersey again.
